Handmade flower day at ladybug crafts

Well everyone, today is my last day as the March guest dt member for ladybug crafts and I have to say they have been wonderful! Kerry and Lisa, thanks so much for holding my hand and helping me out this past month, your comments (and nagging Kerry!) have made this a great experience for me and I truly appreciate it! I was able to pick this weeks challenge and since I love to see all the handmade flowers out there, this is the theme I chose. My flowers started out as white single hydrangea petals that I glimmer misted with star fish and then hot glued together, scrunching them up as I went. I added some stickles to some of the edges and voila! some pretty flowers for on my card.


Now it is your turn to show us whatcha got! Get busy making those flowers for your chance to win a ladybug stamp or be chosen as one of the top three and get to put a ladybug banner on your blog. Remember, you can use a stamp from any company as long as you follow the challenge. Posted by Picasa
